[audio]Old Southern Schottische - Henry Ford's Old Time Dance Orchestra
Henry Ford was very fond of square-dancing, and he encouraged or forced his family and many times his employees to enjoy it as well. He hated Jazz and felt that is was the result of the lessoning of morals and the destruction of society. Thomas Edison did not agree totally with him, but when Henry Ford sent his old time band to the studio, Edison had them recorded. This cylinder is one of these records from the mid 1920's

Peer recorded Carson, but was unimpressed and issued this recording without even a label to the Atlanta market only...

[audio]Sleepy John Estes-Black Mattie Blues - Sleepy John Estes
Recorded on October 2, 1929. John Estes received the nickname "Sleepy" as a result of a baseball accident he received as a child which caused him to lose the sight of his right eye. In addition to his blues style, Estes also recorded jug band tunes with the likes of Jab Jones and, most importantly, mandolinist Yank Rachell. Rachell, who had a life long musical relationship with Estes, abundantly demonstrates that the blues is not relegated exclusively to guitar playing.

[audio]Uncle Sam, Why Are You Waiting? - George J. Gaskin
This recording is perhaps the earliest call to arms records made, it was to turn the tide of feeling against Spain of which we were upset with due to the explosion and sinking of the USS. Maine in Havana Harbor in early 1898, this does allow us to date this rather well since we were not fighting yet, but the song seems to say when?

[audio]B. F. Shelton-Pretty Polly - B. F. Shelton
Recorded on July 29 1927 at Bristol, Tennessee during the famous Bristol Sessions where Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family made their first recordings. This version of "Pretty Polly" is just one of the many turns on the "murdered girlfriend" ballad. Banjo players who play these sordid little tunes tend to tune their instrument to a modal tuning. Some researchers have held the belief that "Pretty Polly" is a shortened variation of another ballad called "The Gosport Tragedy."

[audio]The Last Rose Of Summer - Adelina Patti
This record is one of great historic properties and let's us hear the voice of the greatest soprano of the 19th century, when you hear this you hear a voice that was heard for the first time in 1851 and she sang for President Buchannon in the 1850's and sang for some of the greatest composers and personalities and here in the new century we hear the voice that was heard by those over 150 years ago, isn't recorded sound amazing?
